Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and acquisitions are business considerations or business agreements in which two or more firms combine forces to develop or co-market a product (merger) or in which one company buys out the assets and assumes the obligations of another firm (acquisition).

One way or another, there is always a valid business strategy behind those options: A company may find that the most cost effective method of entering a new market is simply to buy an existing company that serves that market. On the other hand, a company may determine that two companies together are stronger and more valuable than two separate companies, especially during tough times.


Mergers and acquisitions can be structured in several forms:

  • Vertical mergers
  • Horizontal mergers
  • Conglomerate
  • Consolidation

Factors that are considered for mergers and acquisitions are:

  • Cost of the transaction
  • Benefits
  • Synergy
  • Tax and legal issues

Some of the benefits of mergers and acquisitions are:

  • Economy of scale
